Beckham wins battle to stay at AC Milan

David Beckham has won his battle to stay at AC Milan until the end of the campaign and he will return to play for the Italian giants next season.

Under a unique 'timeshare' agreement, the England midfielder will feature for LA Galaxy between July and October before rejoining Milan in November for the rest of the season.The deal follows weeks of negotiations between the two clubs during which Milan bulked at the size of the transfer fee Galaxy were demanding - thought to be around £12m.
It is understood that Beckham is so determined to stay at Milan that he will pay £2million towards the loan fee to Galaxy.the deal is expected to be officially confirmed by the clubs later today or over the weekend.

Chris Brown Charged with Two Felonies

The L.A. County District Attorney has charged Chris Brown with felony assault and making criminal threats.The charging documents name "Robyn F." as the alleged victim.
Forensic experts studying photos of the silver car’s interior said spatters of blood, scuff marks and damage all pointed to a “terrible struggle”.BLOOD in a Lamborghini is proof of the attack pop star RIHANNA allegedly suffered at the hands of boyfriend CHRIS BROWN.

US reports gave the most graphic account of the incident yet.They said Brown hit Rihanna’s head against the car window, bit her ear and fingers and got her in a headlock until she began to black out — forcing her to try to gouge his eyes to make him let go.Brown is also said to have told her: “I’m going to beat the shit out of you” and “I’m going to kill you”.

Brown was arrested a month ago after allegedly beating up Barbados-born Rihanna, 21, on the eve of the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.Brown and Rihanna are said to have made up and were reunited at P. Diddy’s Miami home last week.

He answered only “Yes, Ma’am” to the judge and later he was freed on £35,000 bail until a hearing on April 6.The court ordered him not to “harass, threaten or use force” against anyone. He was not ordered to stay away from Rihanna.A spokesperson for the D.A. tells that he could face a maximum of four years and eight months in prison.

attack on cricket!

Terrorists today staged a commando-style attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team as they were being bussed to a Test match in Pakistan.Six players were injured and six police escorts killed when they were ambushed by masked gunmen with AK-47s, grenades and rocket launchers.The attackers had arrived in rickshaws and burst out in front of the bus, spraying bullets, as it neared the Gadaffi stadium in Lahore.

Batsman Thilan Samaraweera was shot in the leg and opening batsman Tharanga Paranthavina was hit in the chest by shrapnel, both were being treated in hospital and according to the sources all of them are out of danger.Three more players Sangakara, Jayawardene, Mendis and head coach Australian Trevor Bayliss, received minor injuries.Chris Broad, in a car of match officials behind the bus which was also attacked but was uninjured. Fourth umpire, the local Pakistani umpire, was hit in the back and was seriously injured.

Police said up to 12 gunmen were involved in the attack at 8.40am local time as the bus reached a roundabout. They arrived on rickshaws before opening fire.There were immediate claims the terrorists were part of the same group blamed for the horrific attack on the Indian city of Mumbai last November.I feel that India had made a wise decision to cancel their tour of Pakistan after the 26/11 attacks.

The team, apart from the two being treated in hospital, went on to the stadium and were later airlifted by a army helicopter to Abu-Dhabi and from here they will be flying back to their home today itself .The match was canceled and the series called off. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa condemned the attack and ordered his foreign minister to immediately travel to Pakistan to help assist in the team's evacuation and ensure they are safe.

Its time for Pakistan to seriously think of its internal security after just 2 weeks back the entire Swat region came under the control of Pro-Taliban regime.If they keep crumbling under the pressure it might not take much time for it to become a Taliban nation and might have to suffer the same fate as Afghanistan.

The amazing deep-sea fish with a transparent head

This amazing barrel eye fish really does have eyes in the back of his head.Accustomed to living in the pitch black of the deep sea, the animal has developed a unique and incredibly useful ability to spot predators trying to sneak up on it, as well as potential food - through its own head.

Viewed from the front, the creature appears to be just like an average fish.But the differences immediately become clear when looking at it from the side or from above.While its body is mostly dark, the top part of its head is transparent, and its eyes are clearly visible.

Scientists believed the barrel eye fish could only look upwards, but they have recently discovered the creature can also look forward to align its mouth with its eyes.During its evolution, the Macropinna microstoma has developed so its head is transparent and its eyes are able to move themselves inside its own head to look out in different directions

According to evolutionary biologists, it developed such a powerful sense of sight as a result of the harsh environment it lives in.The fish, which is only a few inches long, lives a great depths just below the line to which sunlight can penetrate the water.This means that creatures around it cannot see it clearly. Predators lurking above it cannot spot it either, but it can look upwards to hunt for the small fish and plankton it lives on.

Teenage sacked for moaning on Facebook about her 'totally boring' job!

Like many teenagers, Kimberley Swann was underwhelmed by the menial tasks she was given in her new job.But while other 16-year-olds might have confided in friends and family about the filing, stapling and hole-punching, she decided to let off steam by posting comments on the social networking website Facebook.

Three weeks later, the words 'first day at work. omg !! So dull!!' came back to haunt her when her boss discovered them as he surfed the net.Another posting two days later complained, ' all i do is shred holepunch n scan paper!!! omg!', while another fortnight of apparent misery produced the moan, 'im so totally bord!!!'

Swann was called into Stephen Ivell's office and fired on the spot before being marched from the premises in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. Swann, from Clacton, had worked as a waitress and in a call centre before being taken on by Ivell Marketing & Logistics, a product development and sourcing company, on February 2.

On Monday this week, she was called in to see Mr Ivell who handed her a letter explaining her employment had been terminated.It said: 'Following your comments made on Facebook about your job and the company we feel it is better that, as you are not happy and do not enjoy your work, we end your employment with Ivell Marketing & Logistics with immediate effect.'Mr Ivell said his firm had done everything by the book.

Apple releases Nitro-supercharged Safari 4 public beta

Safari 4 has been available as a beta browser for some time, though Safari 3 was the browser download of choice. With today's official public beta announcement, the main Safari download page takes you to the Safari 4 download link. Users wanting Safari 3 must click an additional link to reach that download page, now considered a historical release.

Apple said that its new Nitro JavaScript engine (based on WebKit) runs JavaScripts up to 4.2 times faster than its Safari 3 predecessor, 30 times faster than IE7 and three times faster than Firefox 3, at least according to Apple. Safari 4 was the first browser to pass the Acid3 web compatibility test with a perfect score a few months back while still in beta. And now it is the first final version of a browser to support this functionality. But while there are lots of new features, Apple missed putting more focus on security, which has been heavily criticized in the past.

Apple has added several new features to Safari. The hefty 25.5 MB package (excluding Quicktime) now includes a new preview of frequently visited pages called Top Sites, a full history search (Opera has had this for some time), Cover Flow -- to flip through the web history and bookmarks, as well as improved tabbed browsing.

Safari 4 also includes HTML 5 support for offline technologies that enable web-based applications to store information locally without an active always-on Internet connection. According to Apple, it is the first browser to support advanced CSS Effects which provide "highly polished web graphics using reflections, gradients and precision masks."

is this ATLANTIS???

The above is an extraordinary image which could be of the city of ATLANTIS.

It shows a perfect rectangle the size of Wales lying on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean nearly 3½ miles down. A host of criss-crossing lines, looking like a map of a vast metropolis, are enclosed by the boundary.They seem too vast and organised to be caused naturally.

And last night the possibility of an extraordinary discovery had oceanographers and geophysicists captivated.The site lies 620 miles off the west coast of Africa near the Canary Islands — a location for Atlantis seemingly suggested by the ancient philosopher Plato.He believed it was an island civilization sunk by an earthquake and floods around 9,700BC — nearly 12,000 years ago.

The “grid” showed up on Google Ocean, a Google Earth extension that uses a combination of satellite images and marine surveys. Dr Charles Orser, curator of historical archaeology at New York State University — and one of the world’s leading authorities on Atlantis — called it “fascinating”.He said: “The site is one of the most prominent places for the proposed location of Atlantis, as described by Plato. Even if it turns out to be geographical, this definitely deserves a closer look.”

The legend of Atlantis has captured the imagination of scholars for centuries. Situated in an area called the Madeira Abyssal Plane, the grid was spotted by aeronautical engineer Bernie Bamford as he browsed through Google Ocean.Bernie, 38, of Chester, said: “It looks like an aerial map of Milton Keynes. It must be man-made.”

Google claimedthat the criss-crossing lines were sonar data collected as boats mapped the ocean floor.But the internet giant said “blank spots” within the lines could not be explained.A spokeswoman said: “Bathymetric (or sea floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor.“The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data.“The fact that there are blank spots between each of these lines is a sign of how little we really know about the world’s oceans.”

Freida's 2007 'wedding' pics??

New pictures of Freida Pinto and her ex Rohan Antao has surfaced on the Internet today. These pictures were supposedly taken on their wedding day at Goa in December 2007.

The snaps are said to show the lovers at secret nuptials in Panjim, Goa.The pair are reported to have been an item since their time at St Xavier’s college in Mumbai and decided to get hitched on the spur of the moment.

But any relationship was at an end last month when Rohan changed his Facebook status to “single”.

Exploding chair kills boy anally..!! WTF...

Well, stories don't get much worse than this. A 14-year-old boy in China was killed when his chair exploded, sending chunks of metal into his rectum. The bleeding this caused killed him.

The alleged explosion came from the gas cylinder that was in the base of the chair, the part that allowed the user to adjust the seat up and down. The canister gets compressed when you sit on it, but can it actually create enough energy to make the seat cushion explode like that and kill a man? I doubt it, but this is what people are reporting.

Man strangles his wife to death after she called out the wrong name during sex

A jealous husband strangled his wife after she called out another man's name during sex, a court has heard.Colin Scully, 53, told police he throttled 39-year-old Tracey after she shouted 'Paul' as they made love.

Scully suspected his wife was having an affair and claimed she had been sending explicit text messages.He later told police that 'Paul' referred to a Paul Deighton, a man they knew from a scooter club.The jury also heard from Tracey's alleged lover Paul Deighton, who became friends with the couple when they joined a scooter club in Bridlington in 2007.

Scully also told officers that it 'blew his mind' when his wife mentioned any other men, Leeds Crown Court heard.James Sampson, prosecuting, said: 'He knelt on her chest, causing bruising, and pinned her down crucifix style to the bed, where he strangled her using one arm.'

Scully later told police he remembered pushing his wife down on the bed before going to sleep in their children's room, the jury heard.Police were only called the next day when he dialled 999 and said: 'I've done something to my wife. I don't know what I've done.'In his police interview, he said: 'I strangled her, didn't I?'Tracey, who suffered from multiple sclerosis, would have taken a 'significant amount of time' to die, according to a pathologist.

Buddhist temple built out of one million beer bottles

A temple has been built by monks in northeast Thailand who used over a million recycled beer bottles to make the walls and roof. Buddhist monks have recycled over one million used bottles to build their temple in Khun Han, Thailand near the Cambodian border

Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew, also known as Wat Lan Kuad or 'the Temple of a Million Bottles', is in Sisaket province near the Cambodian border, 400 miles from the capital Bangkok.The Buddhist monks began collecting bottles in 1984 and they collected so many that they decided to use them as a building material.

They encouraged the local authorities to send them more and they have now created a complex of around 20 buildings using the beer bottles, comprising the main temple over a lake, crematorium, prayer rooms, a hall, water tower, tourist bathrooms and several small bungalows raised off the ground which serve as monks quarters.The bottles do not lose their colour, provide good lighting and are easy to clean, the men say.

A concrete core is used to strengthen the building and the green bottles are Heineken and the brown ones are the Thai beer Chang.The monks are so eco-friendly that the mosaics of Buddha are created with recycled beer bottle caps.Altogether there are about 1.5 million recycled bottles in the temple, and the monks at the temple are intending to reuse even more. The beer bottle temple is now on an approved list of Eco-friendly sight-seeing tours in southeast Asia.

world's longest ear hair

His ear hair is 25cm long and still growing, but the grocer from India Radhakant Baijpai has no intention of trimming it, no matter what his wife says.

Officially recognised by Guinness in 2003 as having the longest ear hair in the world, Mr Radhakant has carefully coiffed his ear-follicles from what was a record-breaking 13.2cm to their current ear-itching length.Considered by Mr Radhakant, 58, to be symbol of luck and prosperity, his ear-hair has been growing since he was 18 and has never been cut.

Maintained by a specially prepared blend of herbal shampoo, Mr Radhakant has so far resisted the pleas of his long suffering wife to cut it off.Mr Radhakant has even stopped wearing rings, so as not to catch his hair and run the risk of losing out on his record.

''I am sure that no one in the world has ear-hair longer than mine and my hair is almost double the length of the first record I set in 2003.......We are currently waiting for confirmation from Guinness that my ear hair, which stands at 25cm is now the new standard for men with extreme ear hair.''

Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto 'dumped her secret husband

The star of Slumdog Millionaire has been hiding a secret husband whom she ditched after the film became a hit, it was claimed today.Freida Pinto, 24, is said to have married Rohan Antao at a ceremony in Goa in December 2007 but last month ended their relationship. The couple were previously thought only to have been engaged.

Their relationship appears to have foundered in the wake of Slumdog Millionaire's success. Pinto, who plays the main love interest, was nominated for a Bafta and the film won a Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a cast.It is claimed that Mr Antao, a Mumbai-based executive, supported Pinto during filming but 'she just stopped calling him' at the time of the Golden Globes this year, according to reports today

"He is completely shocked at being dumped and is heartbroken'' a friend said...The Times of India reported a friend saying''they were deeply in love with each other. Rohan and Freida had decided to keep their marriage a secret till they felt ready to talk about it openly. Even though she has dumped her husband now, he is not the kind who will go out and speak against her."

Her agent in India, Meenakshi Gehani, said last night ''We do not want to comment. However, if she is married then whoever is claiming it should produce a marriage certificate."

charges against pirate bay dropped. :)

Half of the charges leveled at the founders of PIRATE BAY file sharing site has been dropped. Swedish prosecutors dropped charges relating to "assisting copyright infringement" leaving the lesser charges of "assisting making available copyright material" on trial day two.Pirate Bay co-founder Frederik Neik said it showed prosecutors had misunderstood the technology.

The music industry played down the changes as "simplifying the charges".Peter Danowsky, legal counsel for the music companies in the case, said: "It's a largely technical issue that changes nothing in terms of our compensation claims and has no bearing whatsoever on the main case against The Pirate Bay."In fact it simplifies the prosecutor's case by allowing him to focus on the main issue, which is the making available of copyrighted works."

The Pirate Bay was launched in 2003 and quickly established itself as the world's most high profile, file-sharing websites. In February 2009, it reported 22 million simultaneous users. At the start of the trial in Stockholm, Frederik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Peter Sunde Kolmsioppi and Carl Lundstorm were facing a large fine and up to two years in prison, if convicted.

BitTorrent is a legal application used by many file-shares to swap content because of the fast and efficient manner it distributes files.No copyright content is hosted on The Pirate Bay's web servers; instead the site hosts "torrent" links to TV, film and music files held on its users computers.

microsoft's $250,00 bounty for Conficker creator

MICROSOFT has organised a gloabal response to the CONFICKER(Dowadup) worm to diasble domains by Conficker. For the fifth time, microsoft announced a $250,000 bounty to find the source of the worm- a stratergy that's worked four times already and most recently led to the conviction of the author of the Sasser worm back in 2005.

Called a “reward program”, Microsoft said that the bounty is based on the firm’s “recognition” that launching the code into the wild was a “criminal attack”.Similar initiatives were announced in November 2003 to find the authors of the Blaster and Sobig worms, in January 2004 to find the author of MyDoom.B and the source of the Sasser worm in May 2004.

“The best way to defeat potential botnets like Conficker/Downadup is by the security and Domain Name System communities working together,” said Greg Rattray, chief Internet security advisor at ICANN. “ICANN represents a community that’s all about coordinating those kinds of efforts to keep the Internet globally secure and stable.”Along with Microsoft, organizations involved in this collaborative effort include ICANN, NeuStar, VeriSign, CNNIC, Afilias, Public Internet Registry, Global Domains International Inc., M1D Global, AOL, Symantec, F-Secure, ISC, researchers from Georgia Tech, the Shadowserver Foundation, Arbor Networks and Support Intelligence

13 year old boy becomes father. !!!

Alfie Patten who is 13 became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman(15) gave birth to their daughter Maisie Roxanne. Maisie was conceived after Chantelle and Alfie(just 12 at the time) had a single night of unprotected sex.They found out about the baby when Chantelle was 12 weeks pregnant.But they kept it a secret until six weeks later when Chantelle’s mum Penny, 38, became suspicious about her weight gain and confronted her.
The shy lad whose is just 4 ft tall and his voice has not yet broken, said: “I thought it would be good to have a baby"....I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10.” Chantelle admitted she and Alfie — who are both being supported by their parents — would be accused of being grossly irresponsible. She said: “We know we made a mistake but I wouldn’t change it now. We will be good loving parents....I have started a church course and I am going to do work experience helping other young mums...I’ll be a great mum and Alfie will be a great dad.”Chantelle and Maisie were released from hospital yesterday.He is allowed to stay overnight and even has a school uniform there so he can go straight to his classes in the morning. Sussex Police and the local council's children services said they have investigated the case and pledged continued support for the young parents.
